The Voice judge, Adam Levine stepped on some toes last night and even angered some when he spouted off a comment saying, “I hate this country.” But did he mean it? Or was he just angry about the outcome of this week’s vote? Levine released a statement via NBC to set the record straight. Keep reading for more details.
According to ET Online, Levine doesn’t hate America; he was just aggravated and voiced his personal dissatisfaction because two members of his team were voted off during last night’s result show.
Levine released a statement via NBC explaining his comment. “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” he said. “Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed.”
He went on to say last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was very emotional for him and left him feeling confused. And as a result, he voiced his dissatisfaction by saying he hated this country. But what he really meant was he hated the outcome of the vote and that his team members were leaving the competition.
Levine is very connected with his artists and said regardless of the outcome of the show, he knows they have long careers ahead of them.
